jurov: that kind of bug one wonders how the whole thing worked at all
mats: is it because multiple customers put orders in at the same time?
jurov: and at the same price
jurov: and trade between themselves :)
mats: i guess it worked because i was the only one with any volume for the longest time
jurov: not just that, mpex added a misfeature of randomly rejecting orders

mircea_popescu: <shinohai> What kind of poppycock is that? Won't hire me if I have been negative online. << it's not hiring as much as living wage layer two. do you want to be like the niggers, getting free pills and welfare checks ? that's living wage layer zero. move to the ghetto. are you instead happy with the minimum wage, tax rebates, etc bullshit ? that's layer one, move to suburbia. ☟︎☟︎
mircea_popescu: however if you want the best of the best cafeteria food - that's level two! be positive online, move to san francisco!
mircea_popescu: hiring in the traditional sense has no bearing on all this. it's "hiring", as in, usg "hires" you to lap up the welfare faucet drippings.
mircea_popescu: on the plus side, you won't have any actual work to do, that sort where you could encounter and might have to overcome your own stupidity and general human limitations. ☟︎
mircea_popescu: on the minus side, if you can do it for a year and not want to kill yourself every night, you'll know you're dumb. not even "not smart". outright dumb.

mircea_popescu: but to be fair : i also won't hire them if they've been stupid online.
shinohai: Or mybe I could sustain another workplace injury nd double my income.
mircea_popescu: so it's just where the wall is drawn.
mircea_popescu: either don't be stupid, if you can, or if you can't, then don't be negative. sorcerers in the celestial city. zombies in the zombie horde. ☟︎

asciilifeform dreams (literally) of rooms the way a hungry man does of food
asciilifeform: it is interesting how visiting, e.g., a gigantic warehouse, or stadium, does not tickle this fantasy
asciilifeform: because those spaces do not register as 'plausibly like somewhere i can picture living'
asciilifeform: for one thing, a four-story warehouse ceiling is vertical space and ipso facto wasted.
asciilifeform: (from my hindbrain's pov)
asciilifeform: whereas an endless succession of labyrinthine chambers is precisely it.
